In 2017 and 2018 Ashley from Platinum Discos has been wedding Dj at lots and lots of wedding discos. He has travelled the length and breadth of Scotland from Dumfries and Gretna Green in the South West to Dunbar and Berwick upon Tweed in the South East through the central belt of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling and up to Perth and Dundee and all the way up to Aberdeen on the east coast and Inverness in the north.
Ashley has also been the wedding Dj on Scotland’s islands including Skye, Arran, The Isle of Bute and Mull.
Ashley loves going to places he’s never been before but after 42 years as a wedding Dj and wedding entertainer in Scotland these are becoming fewer every year.
He offers brides and grooms a unique wedding Dj service where you get a top quality disco, mood lighting and even a photo booth or magic mirror.
He can also do an all day wedding Dj service where he will play your ceremony music, provide top quality microphones for your speeches and play quiet background music for your wedding meal.
After the wedding breakfast has been eaten it’s a quick room turnaround and the disco is set up and it’s time for the first dance.
After the first dance has been done, it’s party time and the end of the formalities for the bride and groom and they can relax and enjoy themselves with their friends and family.
Ashley says that brides and grooms can be very stressed by their wedding day and he is good st calming them down. His usual phrase is: “don’t worry about the timings and running late, as long as all the things get done at some point it doesn’t matter if they’re a few minutes later than scheduled”
The amount of times he has brides apologising for running late is unbelievable. He reassures them and says “it’s no problem, I’m ready when you are, just give me a thumbs up when your ready as your song is all cued up and ready to play.”
Ashley is usually very relaxed at weddings and arrives hours early for every gig. He explains that if you leave several hours early you don’t get stressed if you are held up in traffic for an hour as you still have lots of time.
Being a full time professional wedding Dj means he doesn’t have to rush home from a day job and then drive like a lunatic to get to his night time gig.
Ashley tries to think of every eventuality and carries a spare laptop, hard drives, cables, mixer and speakers to every gig plus a spare microphone and lead. He explains that even if you buy top of the range equipment it can still break down.
Recently at a wedding his mixer decided not to work at and he was just about to start. He quickly took out his spare mixer from the van and nobody knew there had been a technical problem. The gig started on time and went seamlessly as usual.
Ashley commented “can you imagine what would have happened if I didn’t carry a spare”. Being a good wedding Dj means being prepared for all eventualities.
